I'm really getting tired of Eeveelutions having shallow offensive movepools.

#1Arcanine2009Posted 8/23/2013 7:37:53 PM(edited)
They all need at least one or more offensive move in Gen 6, or I will be very dissapointed. I'm not asking Gamefreak to make them all OU or anything.. Just god, I don't want it limited to STAB, shadow ball, signal beam, and hidden power.


So my suggestions:

All eveelutions: Learn focus blast.

Glaceon: Learn earth power and a priority special ice type move.

Espeon: Learn Learn Aura Sphere or at least Focus Blast.

Flareon: Super Power, and a priority fire type move. Extreme speed and grass knot also maybe?

Jolteon: Grass knot

Vaporeon: It's pretty decent already actually. Ice beam, surf, signal beam, shadow ball, and focus blast are good enough as it is. inb4 earth power. >_>

Umbreon: tail glow? lol


Thoughts? What about you guys?

All eveelutions learning weather ball just for the hell of it would be very interesting also. Could be useful for weather teams. Espeon would loove this. Sunny day+ 2/3 hp heal+ fire ball = GG steel and bug types.


How about new abilities also?

Flareon = Speed boost or huge power? Can run protect on the first turn..

Flareon learning Close Combat would be nice also.

Flareon can learn Superpower...

Flareon can already learn Superpower by B2W2 move tutors, by the way.

Would be too broken.

Don't want other eveelutions completely useless. Vaporean already makes Glaceon pointless to use as it is already..

id agree, it does seem that eeveelutions tend to have not the greatest movepools. part of this i think comes from the fact that most quadrupedal pokemon dont get that much variety.

it be kinda neat if all eeveelutions got the muskedeers sword attacks. and while im not really pro wide distribution of aura sphere, the eeveelutions do seem good candidates for that attack.

power gem could be a great addition to espeon and glaceon's level up pool too. needle arm on jolteon could be interesting too.

Exactly.

I really think Flareon should get Flare Blitz, but that doesn't remedy its godawful speed. A priority, physical fire move would be ideal as you suggested. Extremespeed would also be appreciated. The ultimate Guts Flareon would have:

-ExtremeSpeed
-Flare Blitz/Hypothetical Priority Fire move
-Close Combat (Superpower is counter productive for a Guts user)
-Earthquake/Wild Charge/(Wood Hammer?)

It'd basically be Arcanine with a ton more Attack and a ton less speed.

i tend to not use those "strong" attacks that deal back damage to the user, so ive never understood why people want flareblitz when blaze kick could work well without the negative of damaging poor flareon.
